This paper aims to study the temperature performance with natural convection and radiation effect on a porous fin in fully wet condition.
The finite element method (FEM) is applied to generate numerical solution of the obtained non-dimensional ordinary differential equation containing highly nonlinear terms. The parameters which impact on the heat transfer of fin have been scrutinized by means of plotted graphs.
The porous fin is taken for the analysis in radial profile moving with constant velocity. Here, the thermal conductivity is considered to be temperature dependent. The Darcy’s model has been implemented to study the heat transfer analysis.
The paper is genuine in its type, and there are hardly any works on fins as per the authors’ knowledge.
